MicroNeedling by medical professionals and what you should know

So, what is Microneedling? Microneedling, also called Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), is a minimally invasive aesthetic medical procedure. During microneedling, the medical aesthetician repeatedly punctures the skin with tiny, sterile needles. The tiny punctures in the dermis stimulate the wound healing process, causing the body to produce more collagen and elastin. The result is skin that looks younger and healthier. What conditions are targeted with microneedling? When administered by experienced, trained medical practitioners, microneedling yields highly effective results for reducing wrinkles, minimizing pores, and improving skin texture. Microneedling is also used effectively to treat laxity, scarring, and uneven pigmentation. Unlike lasers and deep chemical peels, microneedling safely treats the skin from the inside out, simultaneously protecting the epidermis and basement membrane.  This treatment can be performed on all skin types.
